Petron blanks F2, closes in on PSL title
Petron blunted F2 Logistics’ sharp fast-game by marching on its own pace to score a 25-23, 25-21, 25-19, Tuesday night and move a win away from clinching the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference title.
Using all its tools from a talent-heavy shed, Petron didn’t give F2 Logistics a chance to impose its usual fast-paced game that worked like magic for the Cargo Movers in the past five matches.
Instead, national team players Mika Reyes, Ces Molina, Aiza Pontillas joined forces with rookies Bernadeth Pons and Remy Palma to help the Blaze Spikers carve out the dominating win before a big crowd at the Muntinlupa Sports Complex.
The Blaze Spikers can wrap up their second title in two years if they win in Thursday’s Game at FilOil Flying V Center.
Petron charged its serves to produce eight points compared to five by F2 Logistics who had a hard time setting up its plays all match long.
F2 Logistics actually had more attack points, 29-27, but Petron got the upper hand in doing the intangibles like excellent digs (34-22) and excellent sets (32-21).
